Is heptist curable

Are the various types of hepatitis curable?  I have these crazy symptoms that has been occuring since possible exposure around Feb 15.  
1. crazy head pressure (fog feeling)
2. tingling eye, arms, legs, stomach,  right hand and tongue.
3. feels like neck has a large mucus ball enlarge in throat.
4. last week, I developed a large red flat rash on my right thigh.  There was a painful lump under the red area.  It last three days.
5. I notice my stool are small like pebbles.
6. I have developed (8) pea size lumps under my skin in my left forearm and (4) in my right forearm.

I did have a hep panel done three months post exposure.  I think I read somewhere that I should have the test at six months post-exposure.

what were the results of your panel three months post exposure. chance are that you would show antibodies at that time. I showed antibodies about eight weeks post exposure

Hep A : treated by bed rest, never a chronic illness

hep B : more serious than A, usually not chronic in adults.

Hep C : more serious than B, usually becomes chronic without treatment with interferon and ribaviran.

Your three month neg tests are very encouraging.  Your six month will probably be neg.  If so, stop testing and worrying.

Let us know how this turns out, Ok?
